New Delhi: Under criticism for the manner it probed the sensational Aarushi-Hemraj murder case, the CBI has constituted a new team to investigate the double murder in 2008.

The new team will be headed by SP, CBI Neelabh Krishna while Joint Director Lucknow Javed Ahmed and Special Director S C Sinha have been given supervisory roles. Other members of the team will be chosen on the recommendation of Ahmed and Sinha, CBI spokesperson said here today.

"This was necessitated as SP incharge Vijay Kumar was transferred and Arun Kumar Joint Director is going back to his cadre. Joint Director Lucknow Javed Ahmed and Special Director S C Sinha will be at the Supervisory level. The other members of team will be posted as per recommendations of the supervisory officers," he said.

Kumar, a 1985-batch IPS officer, will be joining his parent cadre Uttar Pradesh in November this year.

CBI officials maintain that the decision to constitute a new team was taken because Director Ashwani Kumar did not agree with the line of investigation taken by the previous team, sources in the agency said.
